The world’s richest man and Tesla and SpaceX boss Elon Musk has denied the rumor involving him with the wife of Sergey Brin, the co-founder of Google. The world’s richest man responded on Twitter after a report by the Wall Street Journal on Sunday. It is reported that 51 years old Elon Musk was involved in an affair with Nicole Shanahan last fall. Elon Musk and Brin were long-time friends. In 2008, when Tesla was suffering from a financial crisis, Brin gave him $500,000 that time. Mask has confessed over the years that he regularly crashed at Brin’s home in Silicon Valley, the WSJ also reported.
However, the source of the publication reported that there had been increasing tension between 2 tycoon and their teams following the alleged ‘liaison’ in late 2021. Brin requested that his financial advisers sell his investments from the company of Mask.
How did Elon Musk respond to the Twitter user?
Brin and Shanahan, the representatives for Musk, did not react instantly to requests for comment and did not reply. Mask replied to the user who shared the WSJ article on Twitter. He said that he allegedly banged the wife of Google co-founder Sergey Brin leading to the divorce filing of the couple, and they are pointedly no longer friends.
He further said that he and Sergey are friends and they both attended a party two days ago. Tesla and SpaceX boss Elon Musk hit back in the post on Twitter Sunday night. He has seen Nicole twice in the last three years, and those times with many other people around, so there’s nothing romantic. The SpaceX CEO and Founder Elon Mask added elsewhere in the thread that he has not even had sex in ages.
Co-Founder Of Google Sergey Brin’s First Wife
In May 2007, Sergey got married to Anne Wojcicki, who was a biotech analyst as well as an entrepreneur. The couple had a son born in late 2008, and their daughter was born in late 2011. The name of their son is Benji, who is currently 13 years old, and the name of their daughter is Chloe, whose age is 11. In the middle of 2013, Brin revealed that he and Anne Wojcicki lived separately after Brin was involved in an affair with Amanda Rosenberg. The latter was the marketing director of Google Glass. In the middle of 2015, Brin and Wojcicki confirmed their divorce.
As per the source of the business insider, Brin cited ‘irreconcilable differences’ in separation from his wife. There is nothing that the couple owns together assets, but they will determine how they will be divided. In addition, Brin asked for joint custody of their child. He further said that he is not seeking spousal support from his wife. As well as his wife not being awarded it either.
Sergey Brin Files For Divorce From Nicole Shanahan
Sergey Brin filed for divorce from his wife Nicole back in early January, according to the court documents. Brin got married to Nicole Shanahan on 7th November. Nicole is a legal tech founder. The couple has a daughter who was born in late 2018. Sergey and his wife got separated on 15th December 2021. After that, in early 2022, the Co-founder of Google filed for divorce. The reason for the divorce is possibly an affair between Nicole Shanahan and Elon Musk.
Brin and Nicole Shanahan have enlisted a private judge to preside over the case. Brin filed in the court as California deals with a backlogged system. The private judge will allow the couple individually to expedite their divorce despite backlogged courts. It also assures higher-level privacy.
Petitioner is a co-founder of Google and a famous technology entrepreneur worldwide. Because of the higher profile of their relationship, there is a possibility to be an essential public interest in their dissolution and the custody issue of their child, according to his attorney, who wrote these in the document. The attorney also added that the concern is that such publicity affects their child at the risk of danger, kidnapping, and harassment.
